DOBSON — Three additional charges were filed against the alleged driver in a hit-and-run incident at a Dobson school bus stop that sent one teen to the hospital.

Nearly six weeks after the Feb. 25 accident, police located Bruce Wayne Gwyn, 29, of Winston-Salem, on April 4 and arrested him on two felony hit-and-run charges.

Gwyn was confined into the Surry County Detention Center under a $32,000 secured bond, which he posted that day and was released.

On April 15, charges of reckless driving to endanger, failure to reduce speed and driving left of center were issued.

Dobson Police Chief Shawn Myers said officers attempted to serve the citations to Gwyn at the county jail, but as he had been released, they were returned unserved.

Myers indicated that Forsyth County deputies will attempt to serve the citations.

Gwyn is accused of operating the vehicle that drove away after hitting Junior Gonzalez, a 15-year-old Surry Central student, and a younger student whose name was never released, while they waited with a group of children at a bus stop on Atkins Street.

Gonzalez was airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment and is recovering from his injuries.

The younger student was treated at the scene and released.

Ashley Rochelle Phifer Davis, 27, of Winston-Salem, is believed to have been a passenger in the vehicle. She was charged April 4 with passenger failing to give info/aid at the scene of a wreck.

Gwyn and Davis are scheduled to appear on the charges in Surry County District Court on June 9.
